Homebrew 3D Portal DS is out ⊟
Aperture Science, a homebrew project adapting Valve’s Portal series for the DS, is now available to download and play with its first public release. As you’ll see in the “test chamber” footage after the break, this is a totally different beast from StillAliveDS, that awesome 2D homebrew game based on the same series.
This new release comes from Lobo and Smealum — you’ll recognize the latter name from his work on the old but impressive Minecraft DS project. The team admits that Aperture Science is “very buggy and incomplete,” but this release should be “mostly playable” and include 14 stages, plus an on-board level editor.
While we wait for more news from the 3DS hacking front, the DS homebrew development scene continues to put out the occasional release, like this impressive prototype inspired by Portal. By the way, someone also put out a 2D Portal remake for DS several years ago, and it was pretty awesome!
The French coder behind this project, Smealum (who you might remember for his work on the Minecraft DS project), says PortalDS is “nowhere near playable yet,” but that he’ll eventually add other updates including audio. You should note that the above video was shot with an emulator, so you’ll see some graphical glitches not present in the actual game.
BUY Portal stuff
Rayman Raving Rabbids bento created by anna the red, creator of the brilliant lunches previously featured. This one’s nice because not only are Rabbids cute, and the sight of a pile of them in a dish hilarious, it’s a delightfully varied meal.
Anna has started a blog in which she details the techniques involved in the construction of her bento, so you can one day make your own edible art.
For more appetizing sculptures, we recommend checking out her Cooking Mama, Bioshock, and Portal-based creations. Expect to see the last two a lot, as most gaming blogs’ primary purpose is the dissemination of Bioshock and Portal-related craft pictures.
